Term 4: Monday 31st October

Our vision: Waipipi Students are successful learners, who communicate

confidently, and interact positively with others.

Teachers' Paid Union Meeting Wednesday 23rd November

On Wednesday 23rd November, all Waiuku primary school teachers will be attending a Paid Union Meeting. Waipipi School's time slot is at 1pm.


We would appreciate you making arrangements for your child/ren to be collected from school between 12-12:30pm.


Only support staff will be present at school in the afternoon and will supervise any student that is not able to go home at the earlier time. Buses will run at normal afterschool times- not earlier.

Gumboot Day is this Friday 4th November

We will be having a gumboot mufti day this Friday. Students may wear mufti and their gumboots to school. (Please name your child/ren's gumboots)

There will be gumboot throwing games on the day for Year 1-6 students. (Year 7-8 students are at Technology)
